Are you looking for an excuse to travel with your family? Here are some great Central America family vacation ideas!
There are several reasons why you should consider a Central America Family Vacation. A first, very good reason is that if you live in North America, a Central America family vacation is affordable, and only a short trip from just about any gateway in the USA. Getting here from Canada and Mexico is also easy! American, Delta, United, and Spirit all fly regularly to all of Central America. Flying time from important gateways, such as Miami, Atlanta, Houston and Dallas is approximately 2 ½ hours on average!
Although Central America might seem rough and dangerous, and you will find all sorts of travel warnings out there, the fact is that millions of tourists traverse the region every year, and you will be safer in Central America than you would be in many of the bigger cities in the US!
A good place to start thinking about some Central America family vacations ideas is right in the heart of Central America: Honduras. Perhaps the most under visited country in Central America is Honduras, and a lot of it is because the bad rap that press loves to give to the country and the lack of response from the government to react to the bad press. Honduras makes for a great Central American family vacation, with extensive beaches, beautiful Caribbean Islands, mysterious Mayan ruins and some of the best preserved tropical rain forests in all of Central America. Honduras is the only one of the traditional Central American countries (Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica) that offers the opportunity to combine your Central America Vacations with the Caribbean, giving you the best of both worlds!
Of course, you are looking for affordable Central America family vacation ideas! Vacations in Honduras are fun, adventurous and affordable. Honduran people are friendly and courteous, and always happy to go out of their way to help a foreigner out. Best of all, Hondurans love North America and its people, so they will do their very best to make sure that your Central America family vacation is a memorable experience that you will always cherish. Take if from me, I came to Honduras and loved it so much that 22 years later I am still here enjoying my vacations in Honduras and looking for new Central America family vacation ideas!
